We welcome James Michelsberg as guest speaker at our next Leeds Enterprise Network Event. James set up his bespoke tailoring company Michelsberg Tailoring from our Queen Square location 10 years ago. His business, now based in the prestigious Victoria Quarter, specialises in luxury and customer service excellence.

The company offer a bespoke, made-to-measure service which embraces the tradition and understated elegance of Savile Row tailoring.  Expert advice, exquisite fabrics and excellent customer care are at the heart of James’ business.

At the event James will be sharing the catalyst for setting up his business, his journey so far and his vision for the future.  The main event will be a Q&A Session so please come along with any questions you might wish to ask him.

Please feel free to take a look at his website and movie
